I will award 4 points to anyone, who can provide the true identity of "Richard".
It is unfortunate that someone in our midst would seek to trouble the board in this way.
I have already notified the ProZ administration, but they are likely just waking up and have not had a chance to remove the advertisment and the erroneous link to my ProZ website.

Maybe you are overreacting a bit. It is true, that:
- this person has an empty profile
- the "job advertisement" looks more like a resume and rate collection effort, as there are no specifics regarding the job.
However, from this, we cannot conclude that he has bad intentions.
You mentioned an erroneous link to your website, and maybe you assumed that he is trying to "impersonate" you. Well, this is a bit tricky. I think you are talking about the link in the bottom left corner on the profile of "richard123". Well, he tried to link up www.0120honyaku.com, but I guess he mistyped it (probably put in an additional backslash) therefore when you click on it, the link becomes this:
You can see it in your browser's URL field. This is not a valid URL within ProZ, so it goes back to your profile instead. Yes, to yours, when you click on it, and to mine, when I click on it. So, no need to panic, nobody would think that Richard is you, because for each person viewing that link, their own profile will show up.
So, it's time to grab a beer!!!
